Pawel

Hello!

I'm not so sure about that dremel here - it's more like hacking than cutting... I hope you can work with the parts you got as a result... Good luck with your build and have a nice day

Hello Pawel

You are absolutely right in your comment. 

And I apologize because with the emotion of uploading it to the web I could not explain more.

 

Realyl, of all the pieces that I cut, only the floor of the fuselage and the top of the fuselage will serve me. I will discard everything else including the top of the wings, the motors ... etc

 

...everything else will be in scratch.

The floor that shows everything badly cut, I will scratch a new floor and cover the oldest one.

The middle deck of the cockpit  I am going to put a metal so that it is exact and the skin of the fuselage I am going to try to imitate with the anti thermal cover like a shuttle orbiter.

Any comments or suggestions welcome!!!

Thanks

Hello

As a first step, cut the plastic in all the parts I need for the project.

 

Use the dremel to cut the plastic, because it is faster and more practical. Here the photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks.

GAF

This looks like a very ambitious project, especially at this scale.  I will follow along with interest.

Thanks you Gary, 

I appreciate your words. Yes, I personally love small scales and I really love the detail.

I started this project a while ago and a friend motivated me to share it on the web.

 

Thanks.

Hello again

 

For the amount of project details I can name it as something ambitious project.

 

Luckily I have many reference photos and I share some of them.

 

It is necessary before beginning to have a clear idea of the objective.

(Of course, because of the relatively small scale, not all the details can be represented)

(and remember that it is very different what you want to do versus what you have obtained). OKAY.

Here an idea of what I want to represent in the nose and cockpit:

 

 

 

 

 

The cargo bay doors

 

 

 

The Docking Adapter

 

 

 

Here a scale model in 1/72

 

 

The Cargo Bay

 

 

 

 

The cargo bay of STS-125 for repair the Hubble

 

 

 

I want to make the representation of a part of the walls as shown in the drawing.

 

 

The Wings

 

 

 

 

The Camara

 

 

 

The ingene room

 

 

 

 

Of Course The Hubble Telescope, 

 

It is not mounted on the shuttle, it will be with the Canadian arm in space.

 

 

 

Thanks You and any questions or suggestions welcome.

Final Hubble Repair Mission , Atlantis (STS-125) Escale 1/179

Hello, I am very excited to start this project.

I've always been a fan of space and I've always dreamed of having a kit like this.

For this project I have chosen a kit for children in 1/179 scale. Different from those known. And I did it because of the size that is neither too big nor too small.

And especially a size like this you can add an incredible detail.

The scale model consists of 4 or 5 pieces that with a screwdriver fit.

My project is to make all its interior from the nose to the wings including the cargo bay, wings , machine room and telescope in scratch.

That is why you can add a lot of detail.

Because I want to honor the shuttle and telescope.

The first thing is to cut the plastic and I will be showing you the main steps.

Here I attach a picture of the kit.

Any questions or suggestions I am here to serve you.

Thanks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First I show you  a kit that I bought with a low price.
